Little is known about the relationship between smoking urges and situations in adolescence, although adolescent smoking is specifically bound to characteristics, such as peer group situations. Therefore, we performed ordinal regression analyses to predict this situational urge to smoke by smoking-related variables. A sample of N = 1,093 adolescents in North-Eastern Germany was used in 2005/2006. High parameter values on all predictors had the highest odds for situational urge followed by moderate and low parameter values. Implications/limitations are described.
